Don't miss what's ahead.

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Leave the past in the past. Just make sure you learn from your mistakes & take those lessons with you into the present & future. Living in the past & dragging that baggage around with you will cause you do miss all the good in the here & now. Let it go.

Mom-in-law update: I found out yesterday when I went to visit that Pat walked 30 feet with the aid of a walker on Monday. What amazing progress for someone who was supposed to be paralyzed on her right side. God is an awesome God!! Thanks for your prayers!! emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Great news! On the past, I have a quote that reminds me:
We are not shaped by our past, but rather it prepares us for the future.

    God's grace and goodness abound! but Pat still knows it takes her willingness and determination to move her feet ~ He can't do that for her. emoticon keep loving and encouraging her as she battles the frustration of the body learning new ways to cooperate and get stronger. Celebrate each step of the journey, and pray that she will find contentment not being in her own home....she might be making plans to walk on out the door emoticon

    Awesome news! God truly is amazing! As far as your blog poster, the first thought that occurred to me was if you're looking in your rear view mirror to long, you'll wreck! lol! This was timely for me, I've been looking at past mistakes and need to push forward. Thanks for the push.
